The CES 2013 news is still coming in, thanks to our tech affiliates down in the trenches. We have news about Zalman, Cooler Master and Thermaltake in addition to OCZ and other stuff around CES.
It’s been a while since we reviewed any stuff from Eagle Tech, but it appears they’re getting back on the ball and started with a new website redesign!
